Crown Estate Scotland have released leasing details for future commercial off shore wind projects.
John Robertson, Head of Energy & Infrastructure for Crown Estate Scotland said:
“Today marks an important step towards an offshore wind leasing process which will attract investment to Scotland to help reduce climate change emissions and enable wider socio-economic benefits for communities.
“By providing this information now, we will enable developers to start their preparations so that they are in a position to submit suitable applications when the time comes.”
The final launch of ScotWind Leasing is currently scheduled for October 2019. The final timings are directly linked to the development of Marine Scotland’s Sectoral Marine Plan for Offshore Wind.
